Main Round

Beau Handsome: Hello! I'm Beau Handsome, and this is...

Audience: May I Have a Word!

Beau Handsome: As usual, the player who correctly defines today's featured word will win a fabulous prize! Let's play...

Audience: May I Have a Word!

Beau Handsome: Yes, you may! Today's featured word is INFLATE. To give you a clue, here are some clips from WordGirl that show the meaning of the word.

(Clip 1: A giant bubblegum bubble at Zachary Zany's-- from Who Wants Candy?)

(Clip 2: WordGirl holding her breath and puffing out her cheeks-- from Word (Hicc)Up!)

(Clip 3: Huggy blowing bubblegum while flying with WordGirl)

(Emily buzzes in.)

Beau Handsome: Yes, Emily?

Emily: Inflate means to puff up with air or gas. In that second clip, WordGirl was inflating her cheeks. And in the last one, Huggy was inflating some gum to blow a bubble.

Beau Handsome: That is correct! Huggy, show her what she's won!

Beau (offscreen): An official Beau Handsome giant inflatable head!

(The curtain opens, and Huggy is holding a sealed box. He sets it down and poses next to it. The audience ooohs.)

Beau Handsome: Where is it?

(Huggy chatters something and points to the box.)

Beau Handsome: Wh-- can-- can-- can you take it out of the box?

(Huggy opens the box, and pulls out the head. It is limp and looks rather pathetic.)

Beau Handsome: (sighs) The giant inflatable head isn't-- quite as impressive as I hoped. Well Emily, you're still going to have a great time with it!

Emily: I am?

Beau Handsome: Absolutely! Okay, that's it for today's episode, see you next time on--

Audience: May I Have a Word!

Bonus Round

Beau Handsome: Hello, I'm Beau Handsome, and this is the bonus round of...

Audience: May I Have a Word!

Beau Handsome: Our returning champion will have a chance to play for even greater prizes on... the bonus round! Emily, you correctly defined the word inflate. Ready to play the bonus round?

Emily: Yes, sir!

Beau Handsome: Great! Take a look at these three pictures, and tell me which one shows the definition for inflate.

(Picture 1: Mr. Botsford sitting at a table full of letters, wearing bunny ears)

(Picture 2: WordGirl glaring at Dr. Two-Brains)

(Picture 3: Becky standing next to a blow-up doll that looks like her-- from Road Rage, Anger, and Fury)

Beau Handsome: Emily!

Emily: Number three. In that picture, Becky is standing with a balloon she's inflated that looks just like her.

Beau Handsome: That's correct! Huggy, show Emily what she's won!

Beau (offscreen): A pump for your official Beau Handsome giant inflatable head!

(The curtain goes up, and Huggy is pumping up the giant balloon until it floats above the box.)

Beau Handsome: (looking at the head) Hello, Gorgeous! Anyway, that's our show. See you next time on--

Audience: May I Have a Word!
